The South

Where tea is sweet and accents are sweeter; summer starts in April; front porches are wide and words are long; macaroni and cheese is a vegetable; pecan pie is a staple; Y’all is the only proper pronoun; chicken is fried and biscuits come with gravy; everything is darling and someone is always getting their heart blessed. -unknown

Day 14, March 22nd

"Relaxing" was the name of this day! I sat out on the balcony of our hotel room for a little while. It was fun to just take in the beauty around us.
We worshipped in our room because it was Sunday. Brent said the nearest church was 3 hours away. I enjoyed it just being the two of us though. We then loaded all of our belongings up and met our driver in the hotel lobby and paid him for his services. I felt like we were making some big financial deal with him because Brent and him talked for a little bit and then Brent counted out the money and gave it to him. I wondered if we needed a contract signed. HA! We then went to the airport and left to go back to Singapore.
This would begin our long
long journey home. This was just a three hour flight so it wasn't bad.
I believe this is more rice patties.

"Are we there yet?"

This was palm trees that they make palm oil from.
We arrived at the Singapore airport around 6 p.m. and checked into the transit hotel there in the airport. Because our flight the next morning left at 5:30, that meant that we were going to have to be at the gate at 4:30. After we checked in we walked around the greatest airport on earth! I won't go into all the details of it, but it is wonderful!!! We ate at this restaurant that had a man playing the piano, and just outside of that was free xbox game play, big screen tvs etc. You could almost take a vacation to the airport.
Well, and so our journey begins home. I couldn't wait to see the boys by this point.
